Construction & the built environment

Building a safer future in construction materials, projects and practices

Estimates show the construction industry is worth just under £165 billion. Accreditation works to deliver value and quality throughout that process. From schools to stadiums, railways to runways, homes to hospitals, it is essential to have trust that these structures are built to deliver safe, long term service.  Whether it is new build, repair or maintenance the appropriate material must be put in the right place, safely, by people with the right level of competence.

Accredited certificates, inspections, test and measurements drive this confidence. Raw materials, building products and professional services throughout the construction industry can be trusted where they have been tested, measured, inspected or certified through a UKAS accredited process.
